Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy Getting 4K Blu-Ray Release for 20th Anniversary

Will Ferrell and Adam McKay’s comedy classic Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy turns 20 this summer. To celebrate, the movie has received a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray release hitting shelves on July 2nd.

The anniversary set features two Blu-ray discs containing a remastered theatrical version of Anchorman in 4K Ultra HD, along with bonus content like cast auditions, deleted scenes, bloopers, and a music video for “Afternoon Delight.” Also included are an extended cut and the companion film Wake Up, Ron Burgundy: The Lost Movie. Pre-orders are ongoing.

Ferrell starred in Anchorman as chauvinist San Diego news anchor Ron Burgundy, who experiences a rapid fall from grace when he reacts poorly to a female reporter named Veronica Corningstone (played by Christina Applegate) receiving a promotion to co-anchor.

McKay helmed the film in his directorial debut and co-wrote the script with Ferrell. Anchorman also featured Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, and David Koechner as the loyal Channel 4 news team, with the late Fred Willard playing KVWN news director Ed Harken.

Neither a huge blockbuster hit nor critically acclaimed, Anchorman became beloved over time, spawning the 2013 sequel, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.
